Netflix! What are you watching?

Here's the deal. I run on a treadmill 4 days a week for an hour and I constantly need something to watch while doing so. It needs to be on Netflix Instant, however. Some shows that I have enjoyed in the past have been: The Sopranos, Spartacus, House, Grey's Anatomy, Weeds, and Dexter. I have also watched some anime and really enjoyed it. Any recommendations for a good series on Netflix Instant?

I got hooked on Son's of Anarchy last week when I found it on Netflix Instant. In the past week I've watched the first 2 seasons and as we speak I'm watching season 3 episode 6.

Now that Netflix has Star Trek (uploaded all but DS9 in July) I find myself watching that most of the time!

They just announced they are changing the Netflix plans. Separating streaming from DVDs again. So since I can't stream, i'm happy because I can go back to 2 DVDs at a time, and save money over their current 2DVDs plus streaming. I just confirmed my change and will pay $11.99 plus tax for 2 discs at a time unlimited per month, no streaming. I was paying more for streaming i couldn't use. Happy camper here

I'm torn with the increases. I stream a vast majority of the time, but do like being able to get a new release now and then on DVD. I'm not going to pay $8/month to keep get 2 DVDs a month pace I've been on for a while now. I'll go to RedBox instead. Sad because I want to support Netflix as much as I can.

Now on topic, I've been working my way through Scrubs from the beginning, had just finished Legend of The Seeker, and now getting into watching Star Trek: Enterprise and Kyle XY (thank the girlfriend). Throw in a random movie from my 450+ Instant Queue now and then as well.

You have a crush on Dustin Hoffman?

Try Straw Dogs, for something a little different from him.

Or even Little Big Man.
